A CNN host from Baltimore grew emotional on-air as he defended his hometown after President Donald Trump called the city 'a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.'
Anchor Victor Blackwell, a Baltimore native, teared up as he rebuked Trump for his remarks earlier on Saturday criticizing Rep. Elijah Cummings, whose district includes much of Baltimore.
Blackwell blasted Trump for using the term 'infested,' saying that the president often uses the term to criticize non-whites.
'The president says about congressman Cummings' district that no human would want to live there. You know who did, Mr. President? I did,' said Blackwell, choking up live on air. 'From the day I was brought home from the hospital, to the day I left for college and a lot of people I care about still do. There are challenges, no doubt. But people are proud of their community.'
